Watch the Finale: Ducks Disrupt Silver Linings Pitchbook

Sunday, March 21 at 11:45am to 2:45pm

Virtual Event

The Oregon Executive MBA is excited to introduce a second year of the Ducks Disrupt innovation boot camp. This year will focus on developing creative solutions to tackle the opportunities and challenges of the Covid-19 era. The event will be conducted remotely, via Zoom.


We invite professionals, graduate students, alumni, and aspiring entrepreneurs from different disciplines to learn, build teams, tackle problems, and pitch their ideas to mentors and students.

Guided by facilitator Andrew Nelson, the boot camp will cover:

  • Entrepreneurship and innovation
  • Start-up venture fundamentals
  • Go-to-market strategy
  • How to pitch a business plan.

By the end of the kickoff weekend, participants will have formed teams and will be ready to continue developing their concepts in the weeks to come.

During the first three weeks of March, team members will work together to expand and revise their initial concepts. Teams will receive coaching and feedback from mentors with clinical, business, engineering, and finance backgrounds.
